Time-Dependent Current-Density-Functional Theory of Spin-Charge Separation and Spin Drag in One-Dimensional Ultracold Fermi Gases
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Motivated by the large interest in the nonequilibrium dynamics of low-dimensional quantum many-body systems, we present a fully microscopic theoretical and numerical study of the charge and spin dynamics in a one-dimensional ultracold Fermi gas following a quench. Our approach, which is based on time-dependent current-density-functional theory, is applicable well beyond the linear-response regime and produces both spin-charge separation and spin-drag-induced broadening of the spin packets.
